Fodor's Expert Review Olde Shoppe Museum at Change Islands

Fogo and Change Islands History Museum
Finding a one-room museum built and maintained by a local character is a given on most trips through small towns. Finding one that holds any interest or is meticulously well organized, with each artifact researched through painstaking tracking of oral histories, is usually akin to a snipe hunt. But Peter Porter is a curator by deep instinct if not training. His stories and anecdotes may be oft repeated and almost pat in their singsong cadence, but his respect for the history he is preserving is contagious. His accordion playing isn't shabby either.
